Plenti, a static site generator built on Golang and Svelte, has a new way of doing business and that's without the help of a database. That's right, all your code, content and revisions are flat files that live right inside your project. You don't have to worry about saving data in a SQL database that feels like a complicated Excel sheet you would end up managing and hosting on your server. No, no, and NO. Plenti's information is all stored with Git, meaning the code and content is tracked and logged statically on services such as GitHub and GitLab.
Let's review Jamstack.org's definition of the terminology JAMstack:
The great thing about having all these features is the simplicity of builds and the barriers it breaks for new developers wanting to enter to the web dev space. And if you were to take all the websites and look at what features are actually needed, I think you will find there are very few requiring anything more than a simple JAMstack application.
